‘Lifestyle medicine’ could revolutionise patient care

Comment

It is true that lifestyle changes impact many diseases, as well as impacting subjective wellbeing. However. most lifestyle recommendations apply to the entire population, not just to the patient in the chair. One-to-one discussion in GP consultation is therefore likely to be an unnecessarily time consuming way to communicate lifestyle advice. Systems for mass education are required.
